This year marks the 25th anniversary of the West Coast Civil War Roundtable Conference. To celebrate that milestone this year’s symposium will be a bit different from years past. We are offering more speakers and more lectures, as well as one open debate and a moderated panel discussion.

This year’s gathering will explore the 1863 campaign for Chattanooga, Tennessee. Event highlights will include preeminent scholars, sharing with us new insights and new research on this often overlooked and under appreciated campaign. Our focus will be not only on key battles and leaders, but also on the campaign’s origins and consequences.

We hope to see you in October,

Brian H. Clauge, MD

President, San Joaquin Valley Civil War Roundtable
